Vending machines sell champagne and cars

Typically American attractions open in Texas and Vegas
Rather than just sell candy bars or a packet of crisps, new vending machines in the US have been unveiled selling flashy cars and champagne on demand.
A coin-operated car vending machine has opened in Austin, Texas. The five-floor structure created by online retailer Carvana, which describes itself as ‘Amazon for autos’, is operated by an oversized coin.
Customers order their chosen vehicle online, then get the coin on arrival, which they feed into a machine that releases the car. Similar machines are up and running in Houston and Nashville.
Meanwhile, the Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas has opened the country’s first champagne vending machine. It takes $20 gold coins issued at the hotel’s front desk.
